Jimmie

Film stills

Dabar viskas prasidės. Susirasi vaikų, su kuriais galėsi žaisti. Ir kai kurie suaugę bus tau geri. Stengsis padėti. Kiti tylės. Nusigręš. Patys nesuprasdami, kodėl.

As a violent conflict erupts in Sweden, a four-year-old Jimmie is forced to set out to find safety with his father. But the journey never ends, and no one seems to know where they are going. Bringing the refugee crisis horribly close to Western European audiences, the impressionistic "Jimmie" is a compelling, fascinating drama of a child, trying to survive in times of desperation and loss.
